Someone grab me... and keep me on the wagon PLEASE!

It's Monday, it's raining and I'm bored - I want to shop. I miss my fluffy mail.

Angelica - you should be very proud! It's so hard to resist when it's right there, way to go!

I didn't resist. I bought a sunflower derriere fitted. But it's only 8.50 with MDC discount! And then I got her to make me half a dozen dyed hemp flatfold diapers.... I figured these will be fun for when I'm in the mood to do the scandinavian fold (really trim and quite absorbent --10 layers in the wet zone-- for when I am in the mood to do all that folding) and more so these will be awesome for when we are visiting the US and using whatever washing machine we can find, since as just one layer they will wash up SUPER CLEAN and dry in a flash, even just hung up without a machine dryer. And if I can't stand them and they don't work, they will make awesome fairy gifts for my finnish mama friends who use cloth and only understand scandinavian-fold-flats + velcro PUL (bumpy day) covers, and think my fitted diapers would be a pain to wash/dry and are far too bulky for their taste.


: Ladies with Flats and pul covers feeling sorry for me and my bulky hyena stash of fitteds and wool.... :

OK the reason I couldn't withstand the sunflower temptation is that gorgeous turtle batik print that I LOVE....my divine coverings bamboo fitted is that print and it's my all-time-fave-print, and it's too big to use so it just sits there. Now I'm going to have the right size dipe in that print! Yay! And such a great price for all this stuff!


Ok, that was my fluff spending for the week. It's Monday and I am officially not allowed to get anything else at all or DH will have my head. Only following through with fluff-already-in-the-works is allowed (I have paypal funds already sitting there waiting to pay for the items so it's ok).

Hmmm... I just realized I may be cheating. I have not bought anything for Stella since Valor Kids opened for slots. But, I promised my sister I would get her entire newborn stash together for her... so I am getting to but for her. Although, I am really only using paypal from what I sell and I am keeping it cheap, no Diaper Gardens or anything, lol.

Okay, I've been in denial until now. But, I'm jumping on the wagon and I MUST stay on it! Ds has everything he needs for a while and so no more buying. So ... what do you do though when someone posts "XYZ is stocking ... RUN!" ? :LOL

i dunno, Brit, but I better figure out because RB is stocking tomorrow and I have paypal just sitting there (but already earmarked for other purchases I need to pay for so I should NOT spend it)....

Disclaimer: huge rambling.....



Now I'm just shamelessly bumping this thread in hopes someone will distract me away from buying just to cheer myself up. I don't know why I have been so down today, but I always start shopping when I'm down and now the Warm Heart Woolies shorts set is gone and I don't even know who bought it (please someone post here and promise me you will at least post pictures of your beautiful babe wearing the set! I want to enjoy it vicariously!) and the righteous baby stalking isnt until tomorrow and now i'm entirely missing the WHOLE POINT Is to NOT buy when I feel the urge to buy and to do something else with my energy, something else that will cheer me up.....

I know--I'll remember the ultra cute things I found at the store here in Finland today and immediatly sent off to 2 of my favorite mamas on this board.... Ok now i'm smiling--that was so fun to just go to the store and see something and walk straight to the PO and mail it off to them.

I also bought a "See my diaper it's cloth and it's cool" shirt from Baby Bloomrs that I will get to enjoy sometime in July, and that is truly awesome... (even though I'm supposed to not buy yadda yadda yadda).....

My DH is about to start barbequeing some yummy fish kabobs on our balcony so I'll try to actually be social and wipe the grumpies off my face and enjoy the evening! Friday evening is HUGE Midsummer celebration in Scandinavia and we are throwing a party at our summer cottage.... Mmmm

Put your cutest diaper on your baby's bum and watch him run around. I love ds in his diapers and a pair of shoes, no shirt. Something about it just makes me smile!

What did you find IRL??!!!
Sorry if this sounds stupid - but are there brick and mortar cd stores in Finland?
Maybe we should start a new thread this one is so long I can't keep up!

ETA - being on the wagon sucks when you could really use some retail therapy.

I'm weak. My pleas for help went unanswered in the 3.5 seconds it takes to check out.

Okay - am I still on the wagon if I sell a dipe to justify this purchase? :
